Upward Bound provides students who are low-income and/or first generation the skills and motivation necessary to complete high school and to enter and succeed in a program of postsecondary education.

We are one of more than 750 Upward Bound programs thoughout the country. Since 1995, the College of the Siskiyous Upward Bound program has opened the door to a more prosperous future for over 200 high school students. Over 95% of COS Upward Bound graduates complete high school.

There is no cost to a student's family for applying or for services provided. The Upward Bound Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and also supported by the College of the Siskiyous and many schoool districts in Siskiyou County.

Weekly HS check-ins

During this week, UB staff are individually connecting with participants and families. Within the check-in we are verifying if students have internet access, computer access, and/or other academic needs. As we continue to promote the importance completing this academic year strong, we will require students to check in with UB each week via telecommunication by school.
